Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Light amber, little white head only on the sides. Smell is candy & sweetish hops. Taste is mix of bitter hops, sweet candy, white sugar, yeast,… Thick candy body. Okay but how is this farmhouse? There is no funk or anything & nothing about sweetish candy screams farmhouse to me.

Draught keg from Brewdog Camden. Huge Belgian/ saison yeast ’stench’ - but flavour is softer, no hint of sourness, more of a decently-hopped pale ale. A curious mix of two styles.
